There are people who see their pets as an integral part of their family, but there are also those who mistreat them and subject them to neglectful situations. Regrettably, Libre belongs to the latter category.
In Cagua, Venezuela, there was a deserted house with a four-year-old watchdog that was left alone and neglected. The poor dog was constantly tied up with a tight chain around her neck, which made it hard for her to breathe and move around. She was so malnourished that she didn’t even have access to food or water. Moreover, the chain was so short that she couldn’t even lay down and rest.
Luckily, the unfortunate situation of Libre was finally put to rest as her maltreatment by her owner caught the attention of observant neighbors. They immediately reported the incident to local authorities and animal shelters to put an end to the cruel treatment. When aid arrived, Libre was extremely hungry, but she eagerly consumed all the food offered by the rescuers.
The metal chain had left deep marks on Libre’s neck, causing severe damage to her skin. However, after removing the chain and treating her wounds, she received proper medical care. As a result, Libre has developed a new appreciation for life and is grateful for her newfound chance at survival.
